The Flyby 2/21/18 – Black Panther Review

On this episode of The Flyby, Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex will accept King T’Challa’s challenge and review his first solo movie, appropriately titled Black Panther.  We saw his debut in Captain America: Civil War, where both our intrepid hosts agreed he acquitted himself quite well, but as we’ve seen with the Hulk on numerous occasions, being a good supporting character does not necessarily make you capable of carrying a whole film on your shoulders. Fortunately, Marvel has a reputation for delivering fun, entertaining rides even when they don’t knock it out of the park with stuff like Winter Soldier and The...

The Flyby 02/14/18 – Be Our Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day from The Flyby!  Won’t you join Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex for some intimate discussions about superheroes tonight? Even though most of our regular TV shows are on hiatus, there’s still the sexy smooth bass Black Lightning brings to the table.  This week it seems as though his powers on the fritz, while his daughter has spent her time modeling her new costume for everyone, and what’s the deal with his tailor? Oh, and if that’s not enough to pique your interest, we’re hearing all manner of salacious rumors about the future of Supergirl, which we will happily relate...

The Flyby 2/07/18 – Impure Thoughts

On this episode of The Flyby, Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex meet the next World-Killer, aka Purity, which is rather ironic considering half of that episode of Supergirl involves Mon-El thinking about how he loves Kara more than his wife.  It’s safe to say both of our intrepid hosts have had more than enough of Mon-El and the ghost of Sanvers. But at least Mon-El hasn’t taken to drugging his wife to keep her in line like our villain over on The Flash.  Clearly Mrs. DeVoe is transphobic if she won’t accept him in a woman’s body without chemical assistance....

The Flyby 1/31/18 – The Incredible Shrinking Superheroes

This week on The Flyby it’s yet another series of setbacks for our Arrowverse heroes.  On The Flash, we literally had them get smaller when Cisco and Ralph got Ant-Manned by the latest meta (ironically right as the Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer dropped, so your hosts Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex will have opinions on that too.)  Arrow went back to the “will they/won’t they” well for more petty posturing between its A-Team and B-Team, and Supergirl sidelined its titular hero once again for a detour into the confounding and ridiculous plottings of Mama Luthor, just as our protagonists were on the verge of discovering one...

The Flyby 1/24/18 – Girls’ Club

This week on The Flyby, stuff happens on Arrow‘s mid-season premiere.  It’s so bland and boring at this point that your intrepid hosts, Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex, will be lucky if they remember what exactly it was that happened.  Supergirl‘s latest will be hard to forget though, what with the return of the Ghost of #Sanvers and the new Female-Only Fort Rozz requiring Kara to put together her own little league of Superfriends. On The Flash, Barry Allen continues to needlessly rot in prison so that Wally can…wait no, Wally is off the show for being terrible…so that Elongated...
